Stars in their eyes
Revamp's fancy dress experts found the perfect wig for Maribel Coles and her Diana Ross performance. Maribel sent us this note with the photo: "Just to let you know how pleased I was with your service and for putting yourself out to help me. It paid off as the wig was a success, and I had lots of comments about it. I'll definitely recommend you in the future." Happy to help...

These are the only known images of a rare and elusive species that has (so far) been spotted only in three remote regions: western Zanzibar, an underground cave in the Carpathian Mountains, and selected areas of Brighton and Hackney.
Thought to subsist solely on a diet of raw lizards and lager, this family group was discovered and befriended by Revamp's Sarah and Carrie, who persuaded the elders to let us photograph their most sacred rites – elaborate rituals designed to ensure that the creatures' distinctive costumes and plumage are adopted by humans as an impressive tribal fancy dress look at parties and festivals throughout the UK this summer.
Four legs good
Thanks to Richard Norris of Beyond The Wizard's Sleeve for these pictures from his mind-bending performance at the Green Man festival, which featured a suitably psychedelic selection of animal masks from Revamp Fancy Dress.
Fight for this love
Many thanks to Joshua Farbridge for sending in this photo, and congratulations to him for being the first person to hire our spanking new Cheryl Cole 'Fight for this Love' costume for his fancy dress party. We'd only had it a couple of hours! Sadly the trademark slashed trousers – and their contents – aren't visible in this photo, but we're sure his finely toned pins were the subject of many admiring glances. Joshua's (we assume) twin brother makes a rather dashing Napoleon too. They've both got the X Factor!

Revamp put together a bespoke Ming the Merciless hire costume for our good friend Thomas H to wear at Bestival in the Isle of Wight. It obviously did the trick: "I have never had such fun wearing a fancy dress costume. Ming appears to enjoy huge and unexpected universal love," Thomas reported before rushing off to destroy the Earth and eat his victims' souls. NB Hair and eyebrows model's own.

A quick cut and blow dry in the Revamp tent at the Big Chill turned these three unassuming fellas into dead ringers for the Beastie Boys in the 'Sabotage' video. Job done.

Revamp at the Big Chill
The Revamp tent at the Big Chill was the epicentre of a glamour earthquake, emitting a pyroclastic surge of zombies, showgirls, furry freaks, delectable divas and manimal hybrids. With face painting, eyelash affixing, hair dying and ear piercing on offer as well as the usual death-defying range of costumes and accessories, no one who entered the zone was ever quite the same again.
How's about that then?
When marketing executive Sarah Gardiner was thinking about a corporate awayday for Straumann Ltd, a jaunt down to Brighton to dress her colleagues up as bananas, ballerinas, Uma Thurman’s sexy assassin from Kill Bill and what appears to be Jimmy Savile in a gold leotard seemed like the obvious choice. Revamp Fancy Dress were only too happy to oblige.

Baby Bee Gee
Baby Max (he’s the one wearing a wig) carries off the Bee Gees look with exceptional panache in these photos, kindly sent in by Ben Nelson. ‘He’ll never forgive me when he’s older,’ Ben reckons.
The Elf club
Benjamin Jennings says, “Hey check out what the costume ended up looking like. Thanks for the Snazaroo and man tights!” Ben was aiming for a Santa’s elf look, and has achieved it admirably, but we think he could also pass for a cross between The Incredible Hulk and Ozzy Osbourne in his early 70s heyday. Rock! Nice Aga, too.
